Energy Management

Establishment of legal framework for the energy efficiency of EnMS is an old theme in German industries. At the latest since the oil crises in the 1970s, the issue into the consciousness of those responsible moved years. There are many initiatives and research projects on a wide range of efficiency issues. But in the core of the German industrial processes and controlling business it has not really managed the energy efficiency all these years. There were many alibi – and flagship projects”.

There was money well water through a heat pump for the heating of the administrative building used for example, for a lot and used as a shining example for energy efficiency and the environmental awareness of the company. Next to multiples of this amount of energy for the processes used were, without this ever were seriously been tested on optimization in the context of his age not interested. Energy efficiency was understood primarily in the past as a technical problem. The venue of the energy efficiency that was technologically-oriented infrastructure in companies. There was a massive communication problem between the (commercial) management and the owners (technically oriented). Know how to optimize the processes existed on the technical level often, was however unable to retrieve or not adequately prepared and presented. That should change now. With the introduction of the management standards DIN EN 16001:2009 and DIN EN ISO 50001:2011 as a basis for tax concessions in connection with the renewable energy sources Act (EEG), as well as the energy and the electricity Tax Act (EnergieStG, StromStG) was opened a new chapter of energy efficiency in German companies.

You will find solutions and exchange of experience on the 15 IP dialog Forum energy management at the 25.09.2013 in Leipzig. The event offers you the opportunity of experience and exchange of ideas, of learning to case studies and discussions with representatives from industry, business and research. We are pleased about your interest in the topic Energy management.

Economic Affairs

1st Bavarian geothermal energy Forum on the Augsburg fair RENEXPO two-thirds of the geothermal power (40 MW) in the Federal Republic are provided in Bavaria. Here, the most geothermal energy currently go projects realization in Germany. In the Munich region alone, 100 mining licences for the exploration of geothermal energy were granted by the Ministry of Economic Affairs. However, geothermal projects are always risky. To improve the chances of the geothermal energy is to increase awareness and to unify the consumer structures. Still need to improved the technology transfer and new technologies are developed. The 1st Bavarian geothermal energy Forum in Augsburg on the 10.10.2008. renowned experts from the science provides solutions for this, practice and policy here refer to content, potential, conditions and strategies of geothermal energy; Experience reports on existing and ongoing projects and innovative and future-oriented concepts of deep geothermal energy in Bavaria.

The program is complemented by a Fair where 30 companies and institutions present their competence in the field of geothermal energy. A work community of initiative innovative Bavaria, which designed the knowledge transfer in Bavaria successfully with 13 years belong to the partners of the Forum to the one the Bavarian cluster energy technology. On the other hand is the geothermal Association e.V. was founded in 1991 in Bonn, which it has made to the tasks to improve the possibilities for the use of geothermal energy in Germany and Austria. Another partner is the company economic forum geothermal Association (WFG), which also has the promotion of geothermal energy to the target. The 1st Bavarian geothermal energy Forum is an event within the framework of the Augsburg trade fair RENEXPO. The fair is the international exhibition for renewable energy & energy efficient building and renovation with a total of 8 topics. The RENEXPO in the period from October 9-12, 2008 will take place already for the ninth time this year. In addition to exhibition and Congress is a wide free visitors Lecture programme. There is more information about the program at.

Investment Opportunity CHP

Individuals currently circulating as power generators with government funding possibilities, how lucrative can use the EEG renewable energies Act for private investors. The private man can be power plant operators and thus generate electricity which must be removed and are paid for by the energy suppliers according to the EEG. And that for 20 years. Thus a profit is a CHP plant size of 50KW in three years by 18,000 is generated annually. The 166% comply with repayment amount in 36 months guaranteed. Thus, the investment has paid for 1.8 years.

There are some deals in this range where the described here Investitonsmoglichkeit there are three basic differences: 1. it is the drive not a gasoline engine, but a patented turbine. It has a longer life and higher efficiency. 2. the facilities are not scattered over the country anywhere and operated, but centralized in industrial halls. Thus, the maintenance is low, as is the maintenance of all equipment in a place and also fueling (the plants are currently with rapeseed oil operated) is controlled centrally so that the refuelling only in one place. 3. conventional offerings give a 1-year price guarantee, here are guaranteed 3 years.

Thus, the gains are also guaranteed. The equipment can be purchased in a size from 25KW to 150KW and include a full insurance. Also a gegebenener credit financing is possible. So here is a very lucrative and interesting investment opportunity described and offered.
